Alles “Klar”! What is Mehmet Tatlıcı After This Time?

alles-klar-what-is-mehmet-tatlici-after-this-time.jpg

Despite his lack of commercial activities neither locally nor internationally and insistence on leading a luxurious lifestyle with all that his late father left to him, Mehmet Tatlıcı is painting a picture that gives everyone the impression that he is trying to create a “businessman identity”, so that he can “show the location” of the millions of dollars that “evaporated” from the bank accounts in Turkey, because of “said identity”, under the disguise of “Look at me, I founded this company – I transferred its ownership – but I still continue to do my ‘job’ and make money, even though I have different business associates and different addresses”…

Going back many years, the investigations of our news team revealed that Mehmet Tatlıcı is in pursuit of new plots, including virtual companies in Germany and Hong Kong with his “businessman” identity through titular firms called Klaren Lighting (Klaren Aydinlatma) and Klar Electricity (Klar Elektrik), which he founded in Istanbul and “transferred”. These firms represented the resources for the identity he wished to create and show others “as if it was genuine”, since they had no commercial activities whatsoever.

We will be sharing with our readers and the public in today’s article, the new developments of Mehmet Tatlıcı’s games of “Give-and-take”, which he has been staging for years: this time including a triangle of Turkey – Germany – Hong Kong, new players and new plots.

A man, who is on bad terms with all of his family members: Mehmet Tatlıcı

One of the three sons of late businessman Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı from his first marriage to Bedriye Hanım, Mehmet Tatlıcı did not like his portion of the inheritance, which was left to him by his father (and is said to be worth of millions of dollars), and filed numerous cases to acquire more, in addition to others for the revocation of the official will of the deceased and the redistribution of the inheritance, all of which were finalized to his detriment. (Please see:  “What Does Mehmet Tatlıcı Want From Uğur and Nurten Tatlıcı?”; “Mehmet Tatlıcı Loses Again”; “Mehmet Tatlıcı Cannot Get Enough of Losing…” and “Justice Is Served Once Again” news articles).

Mehmet Tatlıcı owes all the wealth he possesses and luxurious lifestyle he leads today to his late father, Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı (in addition to being quite a “dutiful” son to the extent of suing his dead father on grounds of smuggling after his passing away) (For detailed information about it, please see: “The Son: Plaintiff – Late Father: Suspect” news article).

As Mehmet Tatlıcı kept living the luxury life, thanks to all that his late father gave to him when he was alive, he also caught attention with the tens of criminal complaints he filed against his late father’s second wife, Nurten Tatlıcı, and his step brother, Uğur Tatlıcı (all of which were dismissed by the authorities with the decision of non-prosecution)… (For detailed information, please see: “Mehmet Tatlıcı Completed the Dozen”; “Mehmet Tatlıcı Renewed His Record” and “What Does Mehmet Tatlıcı want from Uğur and Nurten Tatlıcı?” news articles).

This “obsession of filing baseless criminal complaints and suing his own family members” of Mehmet Tatlıcı, which has been ongoing for over 11 years, (For detailed information, please see: “What kind of a father is this?” ; “Mehmet Tatlıcı First Eavesdropped, Then Divorced His Wife” ; “Mehmet Tatlıcı Sued for Assault” and “Secret Project Comes Out of Divorce Case” news articles); and the “kinds of games” Mehmet Tatlıcı has been staging through his efforts to present himself as a working man, locally and internationally, were submitted to the discretion of our readers and the public with relevant evidence in the news articles we published in the past on Tatlıcı Truths news site… (For detailed information, please see: “The “Off-Shore Games” and “Business Partners” of Mehmet Tatlıcı” The Plot of Mehmet Tatlıcı and His Attorneys in America to Siphon the Inheritance” and “Mehmet Tatlıcı’s Anti-Tax Games” news articles).

The well-known games of Mehmet Tatlıcı: A familiar “Give-and-take”

The investigations of our news crew in the recent years keep revealing that Mehmet Tatlıcı constantly uses the same “who works with whom” and “give-and-take” tactics, along with “new moves” to present himself as an active businessman

Throughout the games, Mehmet Tatlıcı keeps playing with ever the same tactics; he tries to paint the picture of a businessman, who works locally and internationally. In the meantime, he transfers the companies he founded to persons “close to him”, “manages the businesses” in the background and gradually “evaporates” the income he acquires from the sale of the properties his father left to him. Such titular companies that only appear on paper, but deal in no commercial or economic activities that can be called production or sales are evidence against the suspicion that he may have taken his moves abroad…

Why does Mehmet Tatlıcı play all these games?

When we question the purpose of these games, after consulting with experts in finance and financial markets, without disclosing any names at all, it comes to our attention that Mehmet Tatlıcı planned these plots with great cunning and by “taking into consideration both sides of the coin”:

Mehmet Tatlıcı is trying to hide his actual worth from the financial authorities and tax departments with all of these games, while he also keeps his sources of cash flux “alive” to keep his luxurious lifestyle going by transferring his actual wealth to secret bank accounts in money laundering hubs abroad by presenting himself as an active businessman through the titular companies he established, which unfortunately only appear on paper…

In today’s news article, we would like to cover the “new games” Mehmet Tatlıcı has been playing over the two companies he established; KLAREN and KLAR, where the concept of “who works with whom” becomes even blurrier:

The “plot” set up over the companies, Klaren and Klar

Mehmet Tatlıcı establishes two separate companies on the date of December 1st, 2014 and both of these companies appear to have the same address in the Beyoğlu District of Istanbul (the addresses are not disclosed here due to the principle of privacy of personal information; however, those who wish to have access to said information can view them on ito.org.tr or ticaretsicil.gov.tr websites from the query pages, for they are open to public).

December 1st, 2014 – Klaren Lighting and Klar Electricity companies are founded

  1. KLAREN LIGHTING AND ELECTRICITY EXPORT IMPORT INDUSTRY AND TRADE LIMITED COMPANY (KLAREN AYDINLATMA) 
  1. KLAR ELECTRICITY EXPORT IMPORT INDUSTRY AND TRADE LIMITED COMPANY (KLAR ELEKTRIK)

The investigations of our news crew revealed that Mehmet Tatlıcı is the founder and manager of both of these aforementioned companies (as of their dates of foundation).

December 5th, 2014 – Klaren.com.tr web site goes live

Four days after Mehmet Tatlıcı founded these two companies in Istanbul (on the date of December 5th, 2014), Klaren.com.tr website was published online and it was GLIA Innovation Information Technologies that designed and published the website of this company that belonged to Mehmet Tatlıcı…

The same company (Glia) appears to have designed and published websites of Tatlıcı Development Center – Tatlıcı Construction firms, which also belong to Mehmet Tatlıcı…

January 2nd, 2015KLAREN TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED established in Hong Kong

A brief time after the establishment of KLAREN LIGHTING in Istanbul, where Mehmet Tatlıcı was the founder and manager, another company called KLAREN TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED in Hong Kong, a location far away from Istanbul, was established on January 2nd, 2015. KLAREN TECHNOLOGIES Hong Kong started its activities under this name and four days later, the website of this company (on January 6th, 2015) was published at Klaren.hk

January 6th, 2015 – Klaren.hk goes live (A month after klaren.com.tr in Turkey…)

This goes to show that the company in Hong Kong was established exactly a month later after the establishment of Klaren Lighting Mehmet Tatlıcı established in Istanbul; similarly, a month after the publishing of the website of Klaren in Istanbul (on January 6th, 2015), klaren.hk, the website of KLAREN TECHNOLOGIES Hong Kong in Hong Kong, was published.

At this point, our readers may ask us why we started to talk about a company in Hong Kong with the same name (KLAREN TECHNOLOGIES) as the company KLAREN LIGHTING, which was established in Istanbul by Mehmet Tatlıcı, when we were talking about the latter in the first place.

And they would be right to do so…

However, there are significant “connections” that date back and more importantly, “coincide” later, between these two companies – KLAREN LIGHTING, established in Istanbul by Mehmet Tatlıcı and this company, established a month later in Hong Kong with the same name, which appeared to have started its activities on paper…

That is because “the real story” started even before that; on September 3rd, 2014 with the company called Lindentor 58 VV GmbH, established in Berlin, Germany:

September 3rd, 2014 – The Company called LINDENTOR, established in Berlin, Germany…

Having started its commercial activities at the address of Mauerstrasse 86, 10117, Berlin with €25,000 capital, Lindentor 58 VV GmbH was designated as a company that worked in the field of “asset management” in the official commercial records of Germany and its first manager’s name was Achim Bonninghaus

The investigations of our news crew unraveled the existence of many firms under various names of Lindentor … VV GmbH at the (same) designated address as the firm Lindentor 58 VV GmbH along with a few other companies that work in the field of licensed accounting and others in different commercial activities with the names that start with the same name (Lindentor) and end in the same way (VV GmbH) with only different numbers and words placed in between for the official records.

This goes to show that all these companies are actually kept in the commercial records as ready-made companies and they are sold over time via name and/or partnership alterations…

At this point, we would also like to share with our readers “the source” of these “titular” companies and what they are:

Shelf corporations” that “appear” on paper, but are not involved in any commercial activities

As a matter of fact, these new types of “commercial firms”, which are called “shelf companies” in today’s e-commerce environment, are “served to the disposal” of those, who try to show themselves as businesspersons with actual businesses around the world with the cunning mindset of “hide your light under the bushel”, in order to evade taxes, launder money or hide their earnings “from some places” and “in some ways”, as well as their resources (because they would most definitely be asked how they came up with that kind of money!).

That is exactly why, such ready-made companies are called “shelf corporations”.

That is because all these so-called companies are registered on paper in official records and all commercial information about them are kept in files on “shelves”; leading to this conclusion:

– Is there a company that is registered officially? Yes, there is! 

– Is there an address for this company? Yes, there is! 

– But is there any commercial activities? Now that is unknown…

All in all, these “shelf” corporations with mostly the same addresses turn out to be the same place and the company names (as the aforementioned example of Lindentor in Germany) are often very similar, derived from the same name, which point to the “shelf corporations” that exist only on paper…

Now let us continue from where we left off; the “interesting” story of Klaren Lighting, founded by Mehmet Tatlıcı:

February 17th, 2015 – “LINDENTOR” in Germany changes its initial name to “KLAREN TECHNIK GmbH”…

On February 17th, 2015, Lindentor 58 VV GmbH, which appears to be “active” on paper and located in Berlin, Germany, changed its name and subject of activity, assuming the name Klaren Technik GmbH. The company hence turned into a holding company and is registered in the official commerce records with the statement as “owning the shares, management and rights of the company KLAREN TECHNOLOGIES Hong Kong (established in Hong Kong on January 2nd, 2015)”…

According to the information and documents, found as a result of the investigations of our news team, Achim Bonninghaus, who is recorded as the first manager of Lindentor 58 VV GmbH, left his position and was replaced at the company by two persons with the last names Glienicke and Nordbahn. The scopes of authority of these new managers were recorded as “representing the company in person and carrying out legal transactions, on behalf of third parties by dealing with third parties in person or by acting as their representatives”…

And after this “Give-and-Take” games, the following picture can be seen:

Lindentor in Germany >>> becomes Klaren Technik…

Klaren Technik >>> becomes the holding company and representative of Klaren Technologies in Hong Kong (February 17th, 2015).

Lindentor 58 VV GmbH, which is a “shelf corporation” in Berlin, Germany, depicted “on paper” as if it is active, turned into a holding company after assuming the name Klaren Technik GmbH and undertaking the management of yet another “shelf corporation” that is active in Hong Kong on paper, Klaren Technologies Hong Kong; thus, the “organic link” between these two companies, one being in Germany and one in Hong Kong with essentially the same names (and both of them are painted as if they work actively, despite having official records that render them real on paper), is clearly unmasked…

While all of these were happening, Mehmet Tatlıcı was “taking the stage” with new moves:

Why does Mehmet Tatlıcı “dispose of” the companies he only established two months ago one by one?!

Around the same days, the “stories” of these firms, Klaren Lighting and Klaren Electricity, which were established by Mehmet Tatlıcı in Istanbul, were becoming more and more “interesting” with the developments as of February 2015, as we summarized above…

That is because Mehmet Tatlıcı was transferring these two companies, which were merely two months old, a week apart:

February 11th, 2015 – Mehmet Tatlıcı transfers his company Klar Electricity…

Mehmet Tatlıcı cuts all his ties to this company “on paper” by transferring Klar Electricity (the official name of which is registered in the official commercial records as KLAR ELECTRICITY EXPORT IMPORT INDUSTRY AND TRADE LIMITED COMPANY), which he established only two months ago on December 1st, 2014, to a person named Ediz Gülsu -with all of his shares- on February 11th, 2015…

February 18th, 2015 – Mehmet Tatlıcı transfers his company Klaren Lighting…

Exactly one week after Mehmet Tatlıcı’s transfer of Klar Electricity, he cuts all his ties to this company “on paper” by transferring Klaren Lighting (the official name of which is registered in the official commercial records as KLAR ELECTRICITY EXPORT AND IMPORT INDUSTRY AND TRADE LIMITED COMPANY), which he established only two months ago on December 1st, 2014, to a person named Ediz Gülsu with all of his shares on February 18th, 2015…

When does Mehmet Tatlıcı do these moves?

Mehmet Tatlıcı makes this move ONE DAY after he changed the name and subject of activity of Lindentor 58 VV GmbH in Berlin Germany and turned it into a holding company with the name Klaren Technik GmbH, representing and managing Klaren Technologies in Hong Kong:

Lindentor in Germany >>> becomes Klaren Technik (February 17th, 2015).

In Turkey, Mehmet Tatlıcı transfers Klaren Electricity (February 18th, 2015).

Klaren Technik feels “the need to rectify” the matter of activities…

Two days after Lindentor 58 GmbH in Berlin, Germany, changed its name to Klaren Technik and one day after Mehmet Tatlıcı transferred his newly established company (only 2 months old) Klaren Electricity to a person named Ediz Gülsu; on the date of February 19th, 2015, the very same Klaren Technik (in Germany) makes another new move and rearranges its subject of activities…

And the following activities are added to the Memorandum of Association of Klaren Technik:

In addition to owning the executive rights of the companies (Klaren Technik in Germany and Klaren Technologies in Hong Kong), owning the industrial ownership rights of these companies and all rights concerning their management…

And why did a company that changed its name and subject of activities just two days ago and turned into a holding company, feel the need to update its subject area in two days?

Experts, who closely follow the developments in international financial and global trade arena, stated their opinions when we consulted with them as follows:

“The fact that they gave the same names to Klaren Technik in Germany and Klaren Technologies in Hong Kong (Klaren) may be because they did not wish to limit their holding activities to a single company outside of Germany…”

Another comment from the same experts about this topic, on the other hand, point to another interesting point:

“or such a company may never have been established in Hong Kong…”

KLAREN TECHNOLOGIES PLOT IN HONG KONG

The investigations of our news team also display expert opinions of verifying quality, as well as further information and evidence:

That is because;

  • The address, at which hk is registered and Klaren Technologies in Hong Kong is stated to be “active”: NO. 5, 17/F BONHAM TRADE CENTRE 50 BONHAM STRAND SHEUNG WAN 0000 SHEUNG WAN.
  • Many other companies on the Internet that have activities with different names use the same address we provided above for Klaren Technologies; proving that this is a virtual office, rather than an active and physical company.
  • There is yet another “interesting” Hong Kong firm, which uses the same address; it is called hk, working for the establishment of new companies in Hong Kong.

There are no visual materials or images on the website of Klaren Technologies, in addition to the lack of any production or factory information. There is only the company name on the website, Klaren Technik AG (The holding company in Germany already has the same name: Klaren Technik GmbH).

As Klaren Technologies is introduced on the website, it was as if they were teasing the whole world:

“Entirely German owned and Hong-Kong based company” and “World renowned German technology” were especially highlighted statements.

When we consulted with the experts, we received the following answers:

The fact of the matter is as follows:

“There are ‘virtual companies’ that are used to associate contract produced products, designed and produced in China, with German engineering technologies that are found reliable across the world and they use such statements as tactics in websites to feed people this illusion for the purpose of ‘promotion’…” 

Let us carry on with the “important items” from the website of Klaren in Hong Kong:

“Various production facilities in Europe and Asia”

The fact of the matter is:

The company called Klaren Technologies “promotes” itself as such on its website; yet the addresses of their facilities always lead to the same conclusion: The address information as shown on the websites for such “shelf corporations”, not just for this company, always end up being at the same virtual offices…

Two different addresses are provided in the contact information for the company; one in Hong Kong and one in China.

The fact of the matter is:

Despite the designated production location in China, the investigations of this address led us to an office building called “Taiping Finance Tower”. There are no floor numbers or office numbers at this so-called address. On top of it all, this office building, this so-called production location, appears to be a collection of collective virtual offices for many companies with different names to be used as virtual address information to exist only on paper

That means that multiple companies use the same address as “collective virtual offices”…

An examination of these so-called companies reveals that some sell products for pets and some provide consulting and coaching services…

The fact of the matter is:

One can find everything one looks for here; but in reality, there are no companies; much like the case with Klaren Technik AG and/or Klaren Technologies

“HOLDING COMPANY” KLAREN TECHNIK GMBH PLOT IN GERMANY

A company that was established by a lawyer in Berlin, providing legal services, appear to be “active” at the same address in official records as well…

That means that a company, selling lighting and electrical products, and another one, providing legal services, “met” at the same office…

Furthermore, while there is a company called Klaren Technik GmbH in official trade records, this company has no commercial activities whatsoever…

A peculiar company, the existence of which cannot be encountered when even Googling: Klaren Technik GmbH

On top of it all, Google searches for this company yield a big “zero”; “a massive zero”; meaning that there is not a single piece of information about this company on Google, the most common search engine across the world…

“Titular” companies at the same virtual addresses…

Let us remember the information we have shared above with our readers again; this company appeared to be active only “on paper” with the name Lindentor 58 VV GmbH, before it has assumed the name Klaren Technik GmbH and many other firms at the very same address as this company “were active” according to the official records there…

As we have mentioned above, such “shelf corporations” are established “on paper”, so that their presence in official records are ensured; then they are sold to “some” as virtual firms with “titular” features as company names that only exist on paper. Their “existence” would be visible on websites on the Internet, but when one asks about what these companies do and where they are located, there is no factory, workshop or a physically active office building to be found, which proves the kind of “plot” they turn out to be…

PLOTS WITH MEHMET TATLICI’S COMPANIES Klaren LIGHTING AND Klar ELECTRICITY

The information and evidence as revealed by the investigations of our news crew show that Klaren Lighting and Klar Electricity, which were founded and later “transferred” by Mehmet Tatlıcı, are also such “shelf corporations”.

The facts as we will provide below also clearly reveal the “give-and-take” games these companies, founded by Mehmet Tatlıcı, exist in with the collaboration of other Germany and Hong Kong-connected companies, being passed “from hand to hand”; in addition to pointing to the existence of Mehmet Tatlıcı’s “shadow” being on top these transfer games in the companies “at present”, reeking of “cunning” and even reminding one of the saying about “whose hand is in whose pocket”…

The interlinked “story” of Klaren Lighting, Klar Electricity, German Klaren Technik and Klaren Technologies of Hong Kong…

Now let us pick up from where we left off and take a closer look to how Klaren Lighting and Klar Electricity, both founded by Mehmet Tatlıcı, pass from “hand to hand”, as well as the players and their roles in this game that is planned over Turkey – Germany – Hong Kong with Klaren Technik GmbH in Germany and Klaren Technologies Hong Kong in Hong Kong, the “stories” of which we mentioned above for our readers, in a chronological order:

  • September 3rd, 2014:

The firm called Lindentor 58 VV GmbH in Germany was established with €25,000 capital for asset management activities at the address of Mauerstrasse 86, 10117 Berlin.

  • December 1st, 2014:

Mehmet Tatlıcı establishes in Istanbul Klaren Lighting (KLAREN LIGHTING AND ELECTRICITY EXPORT IMPORT INDUSTRY AND TRADE LIMITED COMPANY).

  • December 1st, 2014:

Mehmet Tatlıcı establishes in Istanbul Klar Electricity (KLAR ELECTRICITY EXPORT IMPORT INDUSTRY AND TRADE LIMITED COMPANY). 

  • December 5th, 2014:

The website of Klaren Lighting, klaren.com.tr, is published.

  • January 2nd, 2015:

KLAREN TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED is established in Hong Kong and the company starts its activities officially under the name of KLAREN TECHNOLOGIES Hong Kong.

  • January 6th, 2015:

The website of KLAREN TECHNOLOGIES Hong Kong, klaren.hk, is published.

  • February 11th, 2015:

As we have explained above, Mehmet Tatlıcı transferred Klar Electricity, which he established on December 1st, 2014, 40 days after its establishment on the date of February 1th, 2015 to a person named Ediz Gülsu.

6 days later:

  • February 17th, 2015:

Once again, as we explained above, the company called Lindentor 58 VV GmbH, which was established on September 3rd, 2014, and appears to be “active” on paper in Berlin, Germany, changed its subject of activities and assumed the name Klaren Technik Gmbh and became a holding company, adding the statement “KLAREN TECHNOLOGIES Hong Kong holds all commercial and legal rights and the management of the firm” to its new commercial area of activity.

Thus, the organic link between Klaren Technik GmbH in Germany and Klaren Technologies in Hong Kong is revealed…

Now let us see what happens exactly a day later:

  • February 18th, 2015:

Mehmet Tatlıcı transferred the firm called Klaren Lighting, which he established on December 1st, 2014, to Ediz Gülsu on the date of February 18th, 2015 – 47 days after its establishment (and a week after he handed Klar Electricity over to Ediz Gülsu).

A day later: 

  • February 19th, 2015:

Mehmet Tatlıcı makes one more move after transferring Klaren Electricity, which he established in Istanbul, to Ediz Gülsu; a day after the transfer, on February 19th, 2015, he rearranges the subject of activity of Klaren Technik GmbH in Germany (the name and subject of activities were altered just two days ago, on February 17th, 2015) and adds the following:

In addition to owning the management rights of the companies (namely, Klaren Technik in Germany and Klaren Technologies in Hong Kong), having all the industrial property rights of these companies and all the rights, concerning their management…”

(Reminder: We have presented the possibilities that may underline this change to the disposal of our readers, along with expert opinions.)

In the following process, the adventures of Klaren Lighting and Klar Electricity, both of which were established by Mehmet Tatlıcı in Istanbul and transferred to Ediz Gülsu, move to an even more interesting phase…

Klaren Lighting in Istanbul is being transferred to Klaren Technik GmbH in Germany?!

  • December 23rd, 2015: 

Ediz Gülsu leaves the partnership by transferring his 399 shares in KLAREN Lighting, which he has taken over from Mehmet Tatlıcı 10 months ago, to Klaren Technik GmbH in Germany and 1 share to a person named Nuri İpekçi, who becomes the manager of Klaren Lighting 

About a week later, the very last day of the year:

  • December 31st, 2015:

Ediz Gülsu transfers the 399 shares in KLAR Electricity, which he took over 10 months ago from Mehmet Tatlıcı, to Klaren Technik GmbH in Germany and 1 share to a person called Nuri İpekçi, then leaves the partnership…

Nuri İpekçi becomes the manager of Klar Electricity, after Klaren Lighting

Six months later:

  • June 6th, 2016: 

The website of Klaren Lighting is removed… 

THEN Seda DURMUŞ TAKES OVER “THE STAGE”…

Approximately three and a half months later, “a new player”, who is quite close to Mehmet Tatlıcı, takes over “the stage” – Seda Durmuş:

  • September 16th, 2016: 

Klaren Lighting in Istanbul transfers all of its 399 shares in Klaren Technik in Germany to Seda DURMUŞ…

Let us quickly evaluate what happened so far and the consequences:

At this point, we would like to briefly stop the interesting journeys of Klaren Lighting and Klar Electricity, both of which were established by Mehmet Tatlıcı, and explain who Seda Durmuş, who is very close to Mehmet Tatlıcı, is to our readers:

Who is SEDA DURMUŞ?

According to the investigations of our news crew, Seda DURMUŞ is the older sister of Serap DURMUŞ, who was Mehmet Tatlıcı’s assistant for years.

The name of Seda Durmuş and her closeness to Mehmet Tatlıcı were covered on media numerous times; it was also claimed that Serap DURMUŞ was Mehmet Tatlıcı’s girlfriend in the statements, which can be found in court records, as well as official investigations of the prosecution…

SERAP DURMUŞ; older sister of Seda Durmuş

Serap Durmuş was on trial due to her statements about Uğur and Nurten Tatlıcı on press and consequently ruled to pay spiritual damages to Uğur and Nurten Tatlıcı:

As per the decision ruled by the 15th Civil Court of First Instance of Istanbul on the date of May 23rd, 2013, Serap Durmuş, secretary of Mehmet Tatlıcı, was ruled to pay spiritual damages (3,000.00 TL). The ruling was also decided to be published in the first issue of Economist magazine…

Uğur and Nurten Tatlıcı actually donated the 3,000.00 TL compensation Serap Durmuş had to pay to them as per the court’s ruling to AYKDER (Association for the Protection of Family Life) (For detailed information about this, please see: “Mehmet Tatlıcı’s Secretary Convicted to Pay Compensation” and “Secretary’s Compensation to be Donated to AYKDER” news articles).

The majority shareholder of Klaren Lighting and older sister of Seda Durmuş, Serap DURMUŞ and Mehmet Tatlıcı’s closeness were covered in media on multiple occasions. So much so that when Mehmet Tatlıcı was in the process of divorcing Gizem Tatlıcı, his wife of 25 years (as was also mentioned in the press many times), Gizem Tatlıcı claimed that “Serap Durmuş, who was working with Mehmet Tatlıcı, was actually in a relationship with him” in official investigations of the prosecution and official court records (Please see: “Mehmet Tatlıcı Raids His Wife’s Workplace with His Armed Men!” news article and the official documents in addenda).

The same claim was also brought to attention, when Serap Durmuş filed a complaint against the two children of Mehmet Tatlıcı from Gizem Tatlıcı on rather unjust grounds; during an investigation filed by Serap Durmuş, children of Mehmet Tatlıcı also claimed that she was their father’s girlfriend (Please see: “What Kind of a Father Is This?” news article and the official documents in addenda).

Seda Durmuş – Mehmet Tatlıcı connection

As can be seen here, the majority shareholder of Klaren Lighting in Istanbul, Seda Durmuş, is the sister of Serap Durmuş, who was claimed to be Mehmet Tatlıcı’s girlfriend…

That meant that the 399 shares (out of 400) of Klaren Lighting, which was founded by Mehmet Tatlıcı and later “transferred” to Ediz Gülsu, was first transferred by Ediz Gülsu to Klaren Technik in Germany; then the 399 shares in question were transferred to Seda Durmuş, who was very close with Mehmet Tatlıcı, and Seda Durmuş somehow became the majority shareholder of Klaren Lighting in Istanbul as such…

The same Seda Durmuş worked alongside Mehmet Tatlıcı for years with her sister, Serap Durmuş, and much like her older sister, received a salary from Mehmet Tatlıcı. This alone is evidence of the close relationship between Mehmet Tatlıcı and Seda Durmuş, who appears to be the head of Klaren Lighting…

Can a person, who received a salary from Mehmet Tatlıcı for years, challenge Mehmet Tatlıcı’s words within the scope of her tailor-made “new job description”? Can she actually develop an attitude and company management style, independent from Mehmet Tatlıcı?…

There were apparently two managers of Klaren Lighting…

Following the transfer of 399 shares out of the total 400 of Klaren Lighting to Seda Durmuş, the 1 remaining share of the company was kept by Nuri İPEKÇİ, who continued to act as the manager on paper…

However, there was a serious error in question here; that is because Seda Durmuş, who took over the 399 shares of Klaren Lighting, and Nuri İpekçi, who kept his position in management as before, were both managers at the same place at the same time: i.e. they were co-managers

This was because Seda Durmuş became a manager, before Nuri İpekçi had a chance to quit…

They would rectify this mistake after “noticing it months later” (we will provide the details of it below).

Let us pick up where we left off:

Now let us continue to the “intersecting” stories of Klaren Lighting and Klar Electricity with Klaren Technik GmbH in Germany and Klaren Technologies Hong Kong in Hong Kong; companies founded by Mehmet Tatlıcı, transferred by Mehmet Tatlıcı, but somehow were “overshadowed” with his presence:

April 14th, 2017:

KLAREN Lighting increases its capital; according to the investigations of our news team, the new distribution of company shares and the partnership structure are shaped as follows:

– A total of 10,000 TL + 1,500,000 TL makes the capital 1,510,000 TL (60,400 shares).

– 60,249 shares are owned by Seda Durmuş with 1,506,225 TL and 151 shares are owned by Nuri İpekçi with 3,775 TL.

– The increased 1,500,000 TL (331) is reimbursed to the partners from the accounts payable

(Relayed from the information, identified with the independent accountant and financial advisor’s report dated March 28th, 2017 and issued 2017/OBH-1). 

August 4th, 2017:

Klaren Lighting declares that Nuri İpekçi left the position as manager and the company, which has been “co-managed” for months is going to continue its activities with Seda Durmuş as the manager…

This decision was declared in the gazette on August 16th, 2017. The following developments, on the other day, arose on the same date: 

August 16th, 2017:

KLAREN Lighting shareholder Nuri İpekçi, transfers his share to Seda Durmuş and the company becomes a “single partner” limited company; Seda Durmuş then starts to manage Klaren Lighting “as the only general manager” of the company (as we explained above, there were two managers there for months until this date: Seda Durmuş and Nuri İpekçi).

Meanwhile, “interesting developments” were happening on the front of Klaren Technik GmbH in Germany too:

 

September 20th, 2017:

The chair of the executive board of Klaren Technik GmbH changes and the new Executive Chairperson becomes a person with the name Erdal Bağcı.

That way, Klaren Technik GmbH had a Turkish person in management “for the first time” in its history in the official records…

Let us remember: Mehmet Tatlıcı founded Klaren Lighting on December 1st, 2014; transferred it to Ediz Gülsu on February 18th, 2015; and Ediz Gülsu tranferred his 399 shares in Klaren Lighting to Klaren Technik GmbH in Germany and 1 share to Nuri İpekçi

Similarly, Mehmet Tatlıcı transferred Klar Electricity, which he founded on December 1st, 2014, to Ediz Gülsu on February 11th, 2015, and Ediz Gülsu transferred his 399 shares (KLAR Electricity) to Klaren Technik GmbH in Germany and 1 share to Nuri İpekçi

October 3rd, 2017:

Nuri İpekçi quits his position as the manager of KLAR Electricity; the power of attorney for Klar Electricity in Istanbul is transferred to Klaren Technik GmbH in Germany…

Meanwhile, Erdal Bağcı kept representing Klaren Technik GmbH in Germany…

December 15th, 2017:

Klar Electricity changes its address and the new address of the company is registered at İçerenköy neighborhood of Ataşehir, Istanbul (The exact address is not provided herein).

The partner and official of KLAR Electricity, which was established with 10,000 TL capital, was also Erdal Bağcı.

March 26th, 2018:

Nuri İpekçi leaves the partnership, after transferring his 1 share in Klar Electricity to Erdal Bağcı.

The new shareholding structure of Klar Electricity becomes: 399 shares for Klaren Technik GmbH and 1 share for Erdal Bağcı

June 10th, 2019:

Klar Electricity establishes a new company with 160,000 TL capital called Kop Energy Production Inc.

The only partner and only executive board of this company are recorded as Klar Electricity Company.

The representative of Klar Electricity appears to be Erdal Bağcı, while the address of the company is in Altayçeşme neighborhood of Maltepe, Istanbul (the detailed address information is not provided herein).

July 2nd, 2019:

Klaren Technik GmbH in Germany transfers all of his shares (399 shares) to Erdal Bağcı…

That way, Erdal Bağcı kept being the only partner and manager of Klar Electricity and Klar Electricity and Kop Energy Production Inc. kept being the only company with shares owned by Klar Electricity…

Germany and Hong Kong related plot over the companies Mehmet Tatlıcı founded

Now let us submit for our readers’ information the truth underlying this game, played over Turkey – Germany – Hong Kong, along with Klaren Technik GmbH and Klaren Technologies Hong Kong in Hong Kong, the “stories” of which we shared with our readers, as well as how Klaren Lighting and Klar Electricity, founded by Mehmet Tatlıcı, are passed “from one hand to another”, as we explained above.

“Titular” companies that are marketed with a few light bulb pictures

Following all these information and developments, the investigations of our news crew to determine the real activities Klaren Lighting and Klar Electricity conduct in Turkey and abroad, clearly reveal that these companies, both of which were founded by Mehmet Tatlıcı, do not have any actual activities at all:

That is because;

For example, the website of Klaren Lighting, klaren.com.tr, involves a brochure called 2016 Klaren Digital Catalogue, which is obviously prepared for this company, where only a few light bulbs and some lighting products under the title of KLAREN German Technology are “promoted” with the reference of Klaren Technik – the titular company in Germany…

Moreover, an examination to determine where this Klaren Lighting is and what it does reveals that there are no activities whatsoever at the designated company address (there is a store that operates under the name Seldur Lighting); the only apparent activities are a few light bulbs and lighting products, “marketed” under the name of Klaren Lighting on hepsiburada.com – an e-commerce website that operates only in Turkey…

In short, these four companies, two of which are in Turkey and the others abroad, which are depicted to be active and operational on paper boil down to the “give-and-take” plot with the mindsets of “we went and went, went up hill and down dale”, leading in total to “and we have gotten nowhere”:

Only 11 (eleven) “commercial products” in total, “marketed” over hepsiburada.com…

So all this “pandemonium” would result in something similar to “the mountain giving birth to a mouse”:

A company called Klaren Lighting with 1,500,000 TL capital for 11 products on paper…    

What a plot, is it not?…

Mehmet Tatlıcı played similar games in the past as well

Mehmet Tatlıcı carried out similar plots in the past with Victor Marian Stanciulescu, Romanian money laundering expert, who was already his “business associate”. The investigations of our news crew back then were submitted to the attention of our readers and the public on Tatlıcı Truths news site:

Mehmet Tatlıcı’s relationship with Victor Marian Stanciulescu – Romanian money laundering expert

Romanian Victor Marian Stanciulescu (who was brought by Mehmet Tatlıcı to even the lawsuits he filed in America, introduced as his lawyer; however, the investigations of our news crew revealed no legal licenses at all) can clearly be observed as the “money laundering expert” he is, when one examines the companies he owns, as well as their addresses.

At this point, one can immediately see a structure, which mediates “off-shore” banking services. The companies, where Victor Marian Stanciulescu is called chairperson, vice president, manager and so on, and the “locations” of these companies being in Panama or Cyprus, which are renowned due to off-shore banking services and as tax paradises (also known as money laundering hubs), besides the provision of different addresses in Romania and United States of America (For detailed information, please see: “The “Off-Shore Games” and “Business Partners” of Mehmet Tatlıcı” news article).

The crossing of the paths of Mehmet Tatlıcı and Victor Marian Stanciulescu, which appear to be a peculiar twist of fate, do not only manifest in address similarities; there are other facts behind it:

THE ACTUAL FACTS BEHIND ALL THESE GAMES AND THE PLOTS:

How are we supposed to interpret the findings of the investigations of our news crew?

At this juncture, let us share with our readers how this whole plot works too…

The investigations of our news crew indicate that Mehmet Tatlıcı’s “companion” Victor Marian Stanciulescu has always been working as an “off-shore” money laundering expert.

That is the start of how the paths of Mehmet Tatlıcı and Victor Marian Stanciulescu crossed, including their addresses in official documents (such as in Romanian capital, Bucharest)

(For detailed information, please see: “Mehmet Tatlıcı’s Anti-Tax Games” news article).

Company foundings “coinciding” with Mehmet Tatlıcı’s 22 Million USD land sales:

The sale of the lands of Mehmet Tatlıcı, which were left to him by his late father Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı, when he was still alive, and the 22.000.000 USD income from these sales somehow coincide with the same dates as the establishment dates of “money laundering” companies of Victor Marian Stanciulescu:

The process of sales of Mehmet Tatlıcı’s lands in Beylikdüzü District of Istanbul happened in summer and fall of 2011; while the income from said sales were last seen in the Turkish bank account between September 28th, 2011 and May 4th, 2012. The dates of establishment of Mehmet Tatlıcı’s business associate Victor Marian Stanciulescu, on the other hand, was February 10th, 2012 for COMPANY EXPRESS (DELAWARE) LIMITED, INC. in Florida and November 15th, 2012 for GLOBAL COMPANY SERVICES S.A. in Panama (For detailed information, please see: “The “Off-Shore Games” and “Business Partners” of Mehmet Tatlıcı” news article).

The dates of establishment of these companies; the “evaporation” of the money from the sale of Mehmet Tatlıcı’s lands in Beylikdüzü from the bank accounts in Turkey; his failure to pay his alimony debts to his ex-wife Gizem Tatlıcı, despite court rulings to do so and his “I do not have a single penny under my name” statements to the courts all occurred around the same time…

All these information, revealed by the investigations of our news crew, bring naturally to mind that Victor Marian Stanciulescu may have had these companies established with the instruction of Mehmet Tatlıcı over the company called Company Express. Starting with these dates, the start of the “evaporation” of the money from Mehmet Tatlıcı’s bank accounts in Turkey and the Romanian address of Victor Marian Stanciulescu’s company records turning out to be the same address as Mehmet Tatlıcı’s official residence (which is a carwash, in reality), as he declared to the courts in Turkey (30 Mitropolit Filaret District 4 Bucharest 040503) all coincide with respect to their dates (For detailed information, please see: “Is Mehmet Tatlıcı in Romania?” and “1 Million TL Alimony for Gizem Tatlıcı” news articles).

Could they all be coincidences? We are leaving it at the discretion of our readers and carrying on with the evaluation of the investigations of our news crew:

Even when the “actors” change, the “games”, “written” by Mehmet Tatlıcı are always staged in the same way

As the aforementioned information and the evidence we submitted in addenda illustrate, these companies, founded and soon after handed over to others by Mehmet Tatlıcı, do not engage in any commercial activities; they exist merely “on paper” to give the impression that they actually do.

The companies in question:

  1. Klaren Lighting; founded by Mehmet Tatlıcı in Turkey, then has its shares “transferred” to SEDA DURMUŞ, who is close with Mehmet Tatlıcı, after the ownership passed from “one hand to another” through Klaren Technik in Germany and Klaren Technologies in Hong Kong;
  1. Klar Electricity (which also owns KOP Energy), founded once again by Mehmet Tatlıcı, than handed over to Erdal Bağcı after being passed “from one hand to another” over companies, including Klaren Technik in Germany and Klaren Technologies;
  1. The company that was initially founded with the name Lindentor 58 VV GmbH in Berlin, then assumed the name Klaren Technik GmbH and turned into a holding company and
  1. Klaren Technologies Ltd. in Hong Kong.

The two firms abroad from amongst the aforementioned list; Klaren Technik GmbH in Germany and Klaren Technologies Ltd. in Hong Kong, appear to have co-ownership, for Klaren Technik manages and represents Klaren Technologies as the holding company.

The “foreign firm” Klaren Technik GmbH in Germany also exhibits “a good performance” too:

  • Mehmet Tatlıcı transfers Klaren Lighting and Klar Electricity, which he founded, to a person named Ediz Gülsu, who then transfers his own shares (399 shares) to Klaren Technik in Germany;
  • Klaren Technik transfers the shares from Ediz Gülsu (399 shares) to Seda Durmuş, who worked besides Mehmet Tatlıcı for years and received a salary from him;
  • The same Klaren Technik sends the shares from Ediz Gülsu (399 shares) in Klar Electricity back to Turkey; this time to a person named Erdal Bağcı 

Who are these people, Ediz Gülsu; Nuri İpekçi and Erdal Bağcı, what kind of relations they have with whom and what is it that they do?..

The following people, as they are mentioned in our news article; who they are, what kind of businesspeople and tradespersons are they; the answers are anxiously awaited:

  • Mehmet Tatlıcı… 
  • Ediz Gülsu… 
  • Nuri İpekçi… 
  • Erdal Bağcı… 
  • Seda Durmuş…

“Actions speak louder than words, one’s work reflects one’s personality”

The information and documents, revealed by the investigations of our news crew, as we shared with our readers at length, also prove that these firms in question have no significant commercial activities – neither in Turkey nor in foreign countries…

This game clearly shows that it is all about Mehmet Tatlıcı’s desired appearance of “Look at the kind of businessman I am; look how I engage in commerce”; they are nothing but illusions and new ways to feed money to the already existing luxurious lifestyles by transferring what is “acquired” somehow, somewhere and what has “already been acquired” somehow, somewhere through their “evaporation” in tax paradises over such games…

As far as we are concerned, that is not how one engages in trade – true work ethics would not allow it…

We will continue to share all the facts with our readers and the public…
